Raptors 905 has swung a deal for Toronto-born behemoth Sim Bhullar, according to Yahoo!'s Shams Charania.

The former New Mexico State Aggie was picked up by the Raptors' D-League affiliate in exchange for 2013 Bucks second-round pick Ricky Ledo.

Bhullar spent last season in the Sacramento Kings organization after going undrafted in 2014. In 39 games with the D-League's Reno Bighorns, Bhullar averaged 10.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and a whopping 3.9 blocks in about 26 minutes of action per night. He played sparingly in three games for the Kings at the end of the year.

The 22-year-old was also a part of the Canadian roster at the Pan Am Games in Toronto this summer, but was left of the team that lost in the semi-finals of the FIBA Americas in Mexico.

If it wasn't already, the CAN-CON quota in the Raptors organization has surely been reached.

What do you think of the move?
